Men and women can be victims of domestic abuse. It’s essential that male victims get the support they help.

The government is offering support to those who may need it. During the pandemic, a lot of people had to stay at home with their abuser. However, by law, you don’t need to self-isolate if you need to  escape domestic abuse. 

Please visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/domestic-abuse-how-to-get-help for more information.

If you are the victim of any domestic abuse no matter how severe, please talk to someone. You don’t need to wait for things to become worse before you ask for help.

If You Leave

If you choose to leave you don’t have to deal with the aftermath on your own. The abuse is not your fault and there is support out there. 

The Men’s Advice Line, Women’s Aid, Galop (For LGBTQ+), or Refuge for Women, could help you. 

If you do choose to leave, be careful about who you tell. It’s essential that the abuser does not find out that you plan to leave or where you’ll go.
